    Proceduralism. A Brilliant Point of View

    I read this today and thought..."What a brilliant simple little statement".

    The Proceduralist approach, which defines art according to the procedure involved in its creation, may help to determine what is art. It works like this: (1) If Jack the artist applies several coats of red paint to a large rectangular piece of wood, which he intends to exhibit as a painting at his local art gallery, then it is truly a work of art. (2) If, on the other hand, Bob the interior decorator applies several coats of red paint to a similar piece of wood which he then installs as a front door at a customer's house, then it is a door, not a work of art. To put it simply, if I intend something to be art, it's art; if not, it's not.

    Now I can sleep tonight!

    Perhaps the door is also art.

    I sure do think it is like stated.
    If you call yourself an artist,you are
    No matter what medium or objects you use,real or digital
    H**l even David Hockney is using an iphone/pad for his art.
    Just deal with tools handed,let others decide if they think it's beautiful(and have them pay for it. )

    I often think of this quote when the 'what is art?' question pops up. It's written on the outside of a pub in Brighton:

    "That which we consider to be true art is that which appears not to be art at all." (Castiglione)

    I'm now going to adopt this new quote 'if I intend something to be art, it's art!' (Sketchism71)

    I too can sleep better, thank you.
